A Garden of Thoughts...

If you are looking for my Imaginisce-The Twinery Hop project, please visit 


Hi there! I'm so excited to welcome you to the PSA Essentials-Momenta Blog Hop! If you are here from the fabulous blog of Christal (Pinky) Hobbs, you are on the right track! If you get off-track, you can always return to the PSA Stamp Camp or Momenta blogs to get back on board. Plus, keep reading for details on how you can win some wonderful goodies! Now on to my project...


I was so lucky to get the chance to pair PSA Essentials stamps with the oh-so-pretty Butterfly Garden collection from Momenta! When I saw the paper and embellishments, I was inspired to create a pretty little garden. I took some of the patterned paper for my butterfly-filled sky and trimmed out a pretty flower accent, placing it behind a white picket fence and some grass. 


I added a sweet butterfly sticker, along with a few little flowers for dimension. Then, I stamped my sentiment and cut out my own garden sign, which I "planted" behind the fence. I also stamped the wee birdhouse and watering can from the PSA Country Home set. Do you see those clouds? Those are actually stamped sheep, trimmed so that just the fluffy part remained!

I hope you enjoyed my wee garden card. I'll be thinking of some special people in my life today...how about you?

Now, don't forget to head on over to the amazing Erin Morehouse's blog for more PSA Essentials-Momenta Blog Hop goodness!
